Recycling Changes FAQ

Back

Plastic bags and film are no longer recyclable, yet you want us to continue to put everything in a blue bag? Wouldn’t it be better to use a blue cart?

Clear blue bags are see-through, so collectors can quickly scan the contents for contaminants and unacceptable materials.

Blue bags keep recycling contained, so it does not end up all over your street on windy days or if your recycling is accidentally dumped when being collected. They are easier for collectors to see and handle. They can easily spot the bags and easily toss them into the recycling truck versus the strain of dealing with a reusable container.

Clear blue bags allow for unlimited quantities of recycling to be placed out for collection. Blue carts limit the amount of recycling to the cart size, as well as requires additional storage of a third cart on the customers’ property.

Although the blue plastic bags have difficult markets right now, the benefit of using them for collection far outweighs not.
